In The Name Of The Rebellion – Part 1

Star Wars: RebelsKanan, Sabine, Ezra and Chopper, fresh from Mandalore, return to the center of Rebel operations on the fourth moon of Yavin…just in time to see Hera, Wedge and other Y-Wing pilots make a barely-survivable emergency landing after a vital mission collapsed due to bad intel. With the Ghost crew reunited, Mon Mothma gives them new orders to modify an Imperial relay station, allowing the Rebellion to listen in. On the eve of the mission, Saw Gerrera transmits a hologram to Mon Mothma, challenging her authority in public: like it or not, war with the Empire is coming…and playing by the rules of engagement will get the Rebellion nowhere. When the relay station mission goes awry, and Saw intervenes, Ezra and Sabine suddenly have a new mission.
